Smile can anyone please help me with resize /var

I have 3GB space on /var and now 90% of it is full; I am not running a web server of any other server that could have full it.
I am using SUSE 10;
I would like to know if I can use yast to shrink the /home partition that have 50GB of space, and use the empty space available on the /var partition
if that possible, which runlevel should I use to do it
thank you

If your not running any type of server, quite frankly 3GB is too large in my opinion. Perhaps you just need to clear out some of the log files that reside there, mainly in /var/log
